It’s definitely one of life’s greatest pleasures, finding out you’re pregnant, but as a woman we often find out in less romantic and glamorous ways, from a wee on a stick or from a needle and blood test. Of course, this doesn’t make the news any less special, but it does give us a head start as to how we can announce the news to our partners, our children and even our friends and family.
From grand gestures to little intimate notes, I have compiled my favourite ways to deliver the news of your upcoming arrival. If you’re in this boat, congratulations – you are sure to find inspiration here…
Beginning with the other member critical to your exciting news – the baby daddy, this is an adorable way to spread the excitement in an instant. Image credit.
Or if you want to splurge a little bit whilst telling your partner, this adorable ‘peas in a pod’ concept will be sure to be a keepsake for years to come…Cuteness overload! Available on Etsy for about $18.
If you tend to be a bit more of a prankster, there would always be this option… good old ‘bun in the oven’ jokes, do they ever go out of fashion? The one on the left is a fancy retro-inspired photo shoot idea, the one on the right (a relative of mine, used with their approval!) is an easy one to clone at home sure to be a hit with your nearest and dearest 575 friends on Facebook…! When it comes to the extended family, this adorable bird spool is sure to leave a smile on a soon to be grandma’s face. Available here.
No one can resist teeny-tiny baby shoe – and adding an adorable loving pose truly captures the joy in the news… naaaaw! Image credit.
Just like little shoes, another baby item that instantly brings excitement and coo-ing is the classic romper with the news attached…. yep, let the coo-ing begin! Available at The Pecking Order.
For the parents who already have one superhero in the family this is a cute way to add the news that another one will be arriving soon.. perfect for celebrating your existing child – and the future new arrival! Even better the free printable for this announcement can be found here!
